I for one like the faster '74 versions over any other. I just listened to 11/11/73 and couldn't get thru it - painfully slow. Too bad cuz thats a great show. 5/19/74 cooks and is my favorite early version.

Thanks, merlin....

Agree w/you re: the slowness of 11-11-73...

My own fault, though, for listing as criteria a version in which Jerry remembers and sings well ALL the lyrics, which the 11-11 version certainly fulfills...My theory on why that song went unplayed for so long is that Jerry really got frustrated w/trying to get all the verses right and just stopped trying (when they picked it up again in the 90's the problem continued)...but thanx for this suggestion--can't wait to give it a listen!
